Hoeven: FAA Awards More Than $1 Million to Linton Municipal Airport Authority

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has awarded $1,329,066 to Linton Municipal Airport. The grant will be used to rehabilitate the runway in order to maintain the structural integrity of the pavement and to minimize foreign object debris. The funds will also support the construction of 584 feet of taxiway so that aircraft no longer need to back-taxi on the runway. Funds will also go towards constructing 320 feet of taxiway to provide access to aircraft hangers.

“North Dakota’s airports play a major role in driving our state’s economic success, and it’s important for us to invest in infrastructure that will allow them to meet our growing transportation and commercial needs,” Hoeven said. “This funding will go towards making upgrades and improvements that will keep pilots and passengers safe, while also boosting efficiency at Linton Municipal Airport.”

As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Hoeven works to support programs that invest in infrastructure and other services to meet the needs of North Dakota’s growing population and commerce.
